We checked in at MacDonald House on Ardross Street after a 10 hours bus ride from Edinburg. Too tired, we slept for an hour, as it appeared to be a sleepy town. Then we thought of going out for a while. It was nice walking along the river Ness -that is just opposite our Guest House. And what came as a pleasant surprise is that the city lies around the first turn to the bridge on the right. Shops, restaurants, hotels, clubs, pubs, bus stop, railway station....are all nearby, but they don't disturb the tranquility of the Ness. Many cities across the world have grown along rivers, but many rivers have died like the famous Sabarmati river in Ahmedabad in India, or had become too noisy. I will discover in the next two days of my stay in Inverness whether this unique distinction of river Ness is automatically achieved, is created by the local authorities. But, whatever the case, I strongly recommend that every visitor must find time to take calm stroll every day along the Ness, even after returning from the day tours to Highlands. And don't forget to let the child in you come out when you jump on the walking bridge!!!
